    2022 NFL Rules Cluster****

    I would like more focus on offensive holding. There is a Twitter hashtag #BOSAWASHELD that shows flagrant examples of non calls. I'm sure there are more examples than this one.

    It always does. Guess I'll find something to take my mind off things tonight.

    No hitter averted, Tuning out. I needed something to get me in a good mood today. It is the one (hebrew) year commemoration of my father's passing. Tough night today and day tomorrow ahead. Guess the Sox is not it.

    Vin Scully has passed away

    Holy crap that got me in the stomach. He lived a full life and all but it still hurts.

    Roster building in baseball: Winning moves are usually not recognized when they happen

    I need to pull this from your post too. The Sox quickly demoted Melancon after he had a bad few games, then traded him. He has gone on to build a very good career.

    Angels: Mike Trout is dealing with a rare back condition (costovertebral dysfunction at T5.”)

Sounds all kinds of crazy but then teams can amortize the contract and at the end of the day do not end up paying...

    Chris Sale aiming to return

    Added numbers To #1. If they plan to use him on 2023 (and well they should) then the roster spot is not "wasted" At some point Pedroia's spot was "wasted" but maybe there was no real Rule 5 crunch then. To #2. I agree that no injury is the guy's fault per se. Unless of course he does...

    Chris Sale aiming to return

    Wait, so the opt out is better for the team? Sorry could not resist. In all serousness, Having Sale and Eovaldi back meant a lot for the Sox heading into the All Star Break, They are handling the dreaded part of the schedule horribly but still have a fighting chance. This deal is turning...

    Juan Soto is on the trade block; rejects $440 million contract extension from Washington

    The advantage of hitting free agency that young is that at least the player is getting paid for prime production years. Signing to Soto for 15 years will surely mean some years of lean production. That will always happen and the only fix will be to pay the players their money at an earlier...

    New NFL TV Deal
